Mark Porter and Simon Esterson have refreshed their 2007 redesign of Público with some additions to the type palette. Primary headline typography is now in the upcoming Publico Banner, a tighter and sharper display component to the Publico family that the two had commissioned for the last major overhaul, and a new Extrabold weight of Giorgio Sans, drawn by Commercial Type designer Vincent Chan. Chan also designed a Deck size of Giorgio Sans in 4 weights, making it possible to use this dramatically condensed family for bylines, running headers, and other small display type. The type palette is rounded out with Graphik, used for captions and info graphics.
